The Holy Martyrs
Innas, Pinna, and Rimma
February 2 (January 20, Old Calendar)
Sts. Innas, Pinna, and Rimma are regarded as the first Slav martyrs recorded in history. They lived to old age in Scythia in the first century, and were disciples of the Apostle Andrew, who traveled to the Slavic nations during his ministry on earth. The holy martyrs suffered for the Faith at the hands of their pagan neighbors on the other side of the Danube, near Varna. They were bound, left on the ice, and froze to death, entering into rest in the Lord.
